having an affair with petraeus. and upon receiving broadwell's e-mails, kelley contacted the fbi which began investigating. now, jill kelley also has hired crisis communications expert judy smith. she has worked with monica lewinsky with kobe bryant and with former senator larry craig. and that all has a lot of folks scratching their heads. why would a woman who was the target of a nasty e-mail or two need a reputation fixer? well, it turns out that while investigating petraeus, the fbi uncovered 20,000 to 30,000 potentially inappropriate pages of documents mostly e-mails that kelley exchanged with general john allen. and who is general john allen? he is the top u.s. commander in afghanistan and he is the man who's nominated to be the supreme leader of nato. as you can imagine that, nomination was put on hold in light of all of these allegations. for the record, general allen denies any inappropriate relationship with kelley and these e-mails are described as flirtatious. so reaction to this unfolding and unbeliev

secretary leon panetta disclosed a dramatic turn in the petraeus case. fbi investigators had uncovered what the pentagon called potentially inappropriate communications between the general and jill kelley whom he and his wife got to know in tampa and were revealing between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of documents including e-mails over two years. officials say some were flirtatious, but the general strongly denies an improper relationship. the fbi discovered the e-mails during its investigation of kelley's e-mails, sparked by her complaints about anonymous threats which turned out to be from paula broadwell. they say they found no wrongdoing by general allen but turned the files over to the pentagon which monday ordered its inspector general to investigate. a social link between the two four-star generals, jill kelley who enjoyed socializing with the powerful in tampa while doing volunteer work for military families. she also gave people the impression she had some kind of state department status which officials say she does not. in fact, last weekend, she called police complaining about media
to the pentagon and ig on the one hand and to the fbi with regards to general petraeus. >> but he's not, i mean big picture watching this, shaking his head saying, guys, we need a more sense of leadership here? >> he's not going to make a grand pronouncement or decisions about things based on, you know, two situations, two individual cases. he's focused on the missions that the military's tasked with carrying out and the cia and the general intelligence community tasked with carrying out, and with acting overall agenda which encompasses not just national security policy, but obviously domestic policy. >> thank you. >> yes. >> jay, has the president spoke to general allen directly? >> not that i'm aware of, no. >> spoke with secretary panetta? >> i have to check that. secretary panetta has been traveling. >> as a follow-up question, does the president see this in general as an unwelcomed distraction at a time when she's just -- was re-elected, and he has a bunch of priorities in terms of the fiscal cliff and in terms of the cabinet? >> well, i certainly, i think wouldn't call it welcome, but obv
that an ethically sketchy, politically motivated fbi agent could spark an incendiary federal investigation tunnelling into private lives to help a woman he liked and later blow it up to hurt a president he didn't like. it's also worrisome that the nation's spymaster who had presided in the military where adultery could result in court-martial could not have found a more clandestine manner of talking naughty to his biograph biographer, baby, than a gmail drop box used by terrorists, teenagers and authors. the scandal is a good reminder that although mccain and palin earned total trust, these guys are human beings working under extremely stressful circumstances, and their judgments are not beyond reproach. one of the elements of the story that hasn't been referred to greatly in all of the coverage because of the obvious, that's atop the coverage, is the repeated assignments to iraq and afghanistan. not only among the brass but obviously the deployments, among the troops, seven, eight, nine deployments. it takes -- exacts a crushing burden on families. >> i mean, in the heart of this whole st
holder who certainly his attorney general would have been aware of what the f.b.i. was doing and i was told no and that it was this person's understanding that holder quite specifically understood how important it was not to let word of this out. not to inform the white house, to keep it at the justice department within proper channels. so i was given a quite specific answer to the question congressman rogers posed but it's a question people are going to want more detail on and they'll want to have people say maybe even on the record there was no leak to the white house. >> rose: there's also this question: did the c.i.a. director petraeus not want to resign and then only decided that he should resign after it became public? >> that's a very interesting part of this story and, again, i want to be honest with your viewers, i don't know the answer. it is a fact that after he was informed that this investigation was going on he did not resign that he waited until he was confronted, in effect, by his nominal superior, the director of national intelligence james clapper who called anymo
apprentice" sex scandal leading back to square one. we know the identity of the fbi agent who helped start the investigation that eventually led to the former cia director's resignation. his name is frederick humphries ii, 47 years old and a veteran investigator. also two -- paula broadwell's security clearance is now suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. barbara starr is following developments for us from the pentagon. we're hearing so far there have been no official findings that broadwell broke any laws or engaged in criminal activity. why suspend her security clearance? >> well, you know, fran townsend is reporting just that, john, that all the indications are, from the laumt forces she's spoken to, not egregious violation. broadwell is a reservist in military intelligence with the army. and inside the military, a violation, even if it's so-called minor, of handling classified information, especially when you're a military intelligence analyst is quite serious. yes, the army has suspended her security clearance. i want to read to you the statement that the army put out. t
lawmakers are asking questions who knew what and when did they know it. >> reporter: f.b.i. never give anyone a head up. david petraeus was at the center of an investigation and the chairwoman of the senate intelligence committee says she plans an investigation of her own to find out why. senator dianne feinstein revealed that the affair came to light after the bureau was trying to figure out who was harassing another female friend of petraeus. >> there was somebody else he knew and he was close to. mrs. broadwell sent these threatening e-mails to her. she was frightened and she went to the f.b.i.. >> reporter: petraeus is no longer to testify in front of congress about benghazi but lindsay graham the truth will never come out if petraeus keeps quiet forever. >> we have a national security failure in the making. i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi before, during and after the attack if general petraeus doesn't testify. >> a whistle-blower was an f.b.i. agent got a hold of david rikert to a national security concerned tied to this concern. he reached
warns her that he's getting these e-mails, this is jill kelley. and jill kelley goes to the fbi and that is how this all unravels. now, speaking of general allen, he, of course, is the top u.s. and nato commander in afghanistan. he was nominated as the supreme allied commander in europe. and that nomination is on hold. but secretary panetta said that they have confidence in him. let's listen to panetta. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job at isap and leading those forces. he has my continued conference to lead those forces and continue to fight. but his nomination has been put on old because it's a prude measure until we determine what the facts are. and we will. >> right, john, obviously it's going to take a while because this is a very tangled situation. but they certainly are looking at exactly what is described as flirtatious e-mails that still remain to be seen what the nature of this was. >> jill, you talk about jill kelley at the center of this whole controversy and scandal. we have
-mails to an fbi agent friend, and that ended up triggering an investigation. those e-mails eventually turned out to be sent by paula broadwell. that would be david petraeus' biographer. and eventually turned out his mistress, as well. we mentioned it was a web, didn't i? and it is. the affair exposed general petraeus and he was forced to resign as the cia director. well, now the general john allen, who is the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, is being investigated for trading alleged quote flirtatious e-mails with ms. kelley over the last couple of years. we're hearing from ms. kelley for the first time in a 911 call to t don't know if by any chance, because i'm an honorary consul general, so i have inviolability, so they should not be able to cross my property. i don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well. but now it's against the law to cross my property since this is now like, you know, it's inviolable. >> all right. no problem. i'll let the officers know. >> thank you. >> meantime, the senate intelligence committee wants to be briefed both by petraeus and his repla
resignation at cia director set off shock waves across washington. it was part of an fbi investigation and if t has many wondering if he compromised national security. >> that's not the only big story. president obama and house speaker john boehner appear to be drawing lines in the sand on that looming fiscal cliff. big tax hikes and spending cuts that could take effect at the end of the year if they can't find a compromise. >>> also, it sounds crazy, but apparently it's real. you'll meet some people who are addicted to the internet. >>> and with prices skyrocketing at the super market, we have tips on stretching your dollar and making your groceries last longer. >>> and speaking of money, famous women making it fashionable to recycle outfits. >>> i wore this suit six weeks ago, okay? >> and a poodle mix that was rescued from a trash heat and who is blind. i watched this piece earlier today, it brings tears to your eyes. >>> we begin this morning with the scandal that cost cia director david petraeus his job. >> good morning to you erica, this stunning news comes on the heels of the pr
